The trio have grown up together after coming through the famed La Masia academy and are said to be close friends in personal life. This is big boost for the amateur club as they look to win promotion to the Tercera, the fourth-tier of Spanish football.
Former Barcelona players Albert Jorquera and Gabri Garcia have been appointed in the dugout in order to establish a style of play similar to the Catalan giants and help their dream of gaining promotion to come to fruition.
It is no secret that Pique is already planning for life after football, with many tipping the centre-back to become the club’s president in the future, while it is unclear on the exact amount of the number of shares purchased by Messi and Fabregas, there is no doubt that this is a boost for Andorra and will elevate their profile in football.
